Big doubts on this man. The Charles Hynes who dies in Loughrea Galway 1951 is listed in the Irish deaths as being only 95 and born in 1855. The same man? born in 1855 appears in Galway Petty Sessions constantly every year from 1875 to 1885. So he could not served in the Zulu War?, but who did ?? The Rangers base was Galway, the newspaper report seems genuine, draw your own conclusions.
There seems to be no Military Records??.
